NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The NOPD arrested a man in connection with several vandalism incidents in the Second District, including a spay-painted threat on a building of the school he graduated from in 2015.

Peter Curtis, 19, was arrested after a Crimestoppers tip and surveillance video helped police identify him, according to an NOPD news release. Second District Detectives then obtained a search warrant for his home.

Based on the facts of the investigation, detectives booked Curtis with seven counts of criminal mischief and one count of terrorizing. 

Curtis is accused of spray painting buildings on the campuses of Tulane and Isidore Newman, as well as a child advocacy center Uptown. In the Newman case the graffiti, which contained profanity and threatened violence, caused the school to delay the start of classes.
